Most people don't know this but, I'm also an actress/model on the side. Yes, I have an actual modeling contract and yes I've been on castings and I've booked jobs. I have an agent who takes 20% and I've spent time on set in a trailer for "talent only." However, admittedly, my star seems to be stuck on an F-List trajectory. I only say this because the last job I was booked on was for a public service announcement about soda, where I had to audition by playing phantom tag with a motely crew that included two elderly people, a douchebag 20-something F-list audition pro that had been on "hundreds of these", and a girl who didn't know how to play tag. Needless to say, I was the Gigi Hadid of that casting. My other job was for a Microsoft internal office video that nobody would ever see and nobody would ever care about because when I asked for the reel, the production company said "I don't know." You think there's going to be a happy ending to this post, that ultimately I'm getting my big break in a national commercial and I've moved up to the D-list along with countless other movie extras. But it's not looking like that's going to be my happy ending. Especially in light of the audition call I got from my agent today for a solar panels shoot--which is always so sexy--and hey, to bring my husband too! So, I'm going to auditions where they are literally begging people to audition for them because even the real struggling actors with no money or food are like, this shit is lame. It's on Friday, and we'll be going because I don't turn my nose up at $$$ and somebody there might know somebody who knows somebody who knows a powerful person that can get me into a Monistat commercial. You know the big leagues. #playingthegame #stickingtofashion #imnevergoingtomakeitbigami
This year we need Valentine's love more than ever, so give it, spread it, take it and make it. Happy Valentine's Day!
Do you have those days where you feel like your outfit just looks insane, but in actuality, you look totally amazing? Well, I was SO having one of those days. A true "it's so bad it's good" days. I mean, lucite heels, crazy cat eye sunnies, and huge jeans that look like a potato sacks bedazzled with pearls?! No doubt, these items are amazing on their own, but all mish-mashed together? In one outfit, on a girl with a moon face and bob haircut? Turns out, it's still amazing. Next up, something having to do with marabou slippers and bomber jackets maybe? So tacky it's cute?
There's a misconception when it comes to having a bob haircut; people are always telling me how lucky I am to have a haircut where I can just wake up and toss my head back and have perfect hair. Sure, if tossing my head back is code for spending 20 minutes slicking my bangs in place. And unlike long haired gals, there's no ponytails or top knots when your hair is oily and disgusting. When I have those days, I'm just oily and disgusting. So, other than my amazing hairstylist soulmate Michael at SF's Sassoon Salon keeping my A-line high and tight, I'll enlighten you on *a few* other things I need to keep my bob looking clean.
1. Washing every single day, every single morning with conditioner. It's a pain, but it's essential. There's no dry shampoo, there's no running a comb through it. There's only bed head and a hot mess so washing every morning is a must.
2. A really good hairdryer. For a lot of bounce and a lot of shine, you want to have a good blow-out.
3. Hair trimming scissors. To keep the bangs nice and blunt, you have to cut them once every two weeks so learning how to cut your bangs and having professional scissors is a necessity.
4. Hair straightener. Every morning like a brush or a comb, you'll need to run a hair straightener through your hair to keep everything looking straight and in place. Especially for the bangs to maintain their bluntness.
5. And last and certainly not least is to go out there and find your own hairstylist soulmate who knows what they're doing and always says yes to your vision. Michael from Sassoon Salon is my hair doctor, he fixes my hair, keeps it perfect and listens to all my complaints to boot. He is, essentially, the perfect guy.
So you see all you have to do is roll out of bed and wash, and blow dry, and straighten, and cut your bangs and you too can rock this "easy" bob cut.
